Really, that s a word you cannot use to much in connection with this series.I m well aware that I can t make anyone love the series like I do Obviously, we connect with stories in different ways, and at different times, if ever To me, this series is as amazing as Harry Potter In a wayso Maybe it s not exactly better, but it s definitely no less brilliant either I like very few books like this It s one of those rare ones that I ll want to read again and again As for the hardback I was awaiting. It seems the publisher expects to release it after I m gone According to the website in 2098, so while I would much rather receive a copy of it, I lllikely be refunded my money Bummer I could respend it on the U.S version, but I would much rather read the British version, with all it s informal and old British words Really it s endearing and witty throughout Prereview, of sorts I ordered two books. One for my daughter, and one for me Then today she got hers Am I envious Nooo. Me, envious. Never. Mine haven t even been dispatched yet. Which means I may receive it some weeks from now If I m lucky. What to do. I could buy a third copy from iBooks and get to read it soonish, or I can wait. Should I buy three of any one book this will definitely be the one most deserving. It s no doubt my most anticipated read this year I might do it..Really, I can t rave enough about this series.. 5 stars all over againThese books are so near and dear to my heart Lucy, Lockwood, and George are wonderful and I love them so much They are some of the best written characters I ve come across in YA fiction, and they stand with the greats Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, etc And of course the skull His sass takes on a whole new level here and I can t tell you the number of times I busted out laughing at something he said XDI don t even know if I can write a full and coherent review for this book because I am currently hugging the book to my chest trying my best to osmosis myself into this world Can I pretty please be a part of the Lockwood and Co team t minus 32 days until The Empty Grave and my fingers are crossed for some major Lucewood shipping please and thank you D Update 8 7 17 So I m rereading this because book 5 comes out next month and I am absolutely in love with Lockwood, Lucy, and George Holly is just okay WHAT WAS THAT ENDING HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO MAKE IT TILL SEPTEMBER IM IN FULL FREAKOUT MODE HERE PEOPLERTC ONCE I CAN STOP SHOUTING According to the description, this one has an unexpected cliffhanger ending Well I guess it s not so unexpected now, but the next book doesn t come out till September, which means a tortuous wait through the summer cries softly Oh well I have to read this NOW Something wicked this way comes Mild spoilers, for instance. Confession time This book was probably my least favorite in the series Alright, alright, put down those pitchforks and hear me out for a minute.The Creeping Shadow was flawed The first half of the book was, much like Lucy s encounters with Lockwood and the gang, awkward It took a while to find its flow, and was honestly a little repetitive until it found its groove We didn t need to be reminded of what happened in the previous books that many times, Stroud Just saying.This book picks up a few months after the events of the previous book Lucy s been sticking it out on her own and, it must be said, she s been doing pretty alright Sure, it gets a little lonely, and sure having to listen to agency supervisors whine and harp during cases gets annoying real fast, but Lucy enjoys her freedom And,importantly, she s taking comfort in the fact that she s not leading Lockwood to his death.But all that changes when she stumbles upon a dangerous secret, and the only people she can turn to are her old friends back at Lockwood Co Holly, George, and Antony Lockwood They take her back with, mostly, open arms, and the four of them quickly fall into their old groove and move on to solve possibly the biggest mystery in their short careers One that involves the shady as hell I ve been saying it from the beginning Penelope Fittes, and the Rotwell Agency.From thereon out, the pace picks up, and the writing finds its rhythm again And, without spoiling, lemme tell you, that the mystery in this novel has HUGE repercussions that will impact the rest of the series Really I can t wait to see what s in store for the gang in the books to come.The characters as the same as your remember Endlessly charming in their individuality, and each witty as hell I was surprised the find that the character I was most excited to see wasn t Lockwood Kaz Brekker has officially ruined me but the skull Yup The skull He s still a sassy, annoying little cretin, but God he was a delight.The imagery and the description were also a true delight Stroud definitely upped his game in that department Like, this books shows us some of the creepiest ghouls and ghosts in the series It was all very well done.All in all, it was a very enjoyable read I just I just can t help but feel a tad disappointed by the initial pacing issues, as well as the character growth Or lack thereof I felt like there were so many opportunities for these characters to grow and evolve as people but there really wasn t much evolution There were few changes, yes, but for the most part, they re all pretty much the same Which is sad, because considering everything they ve been through in the last couple books, there s definitely room for a little, believable, character change.Oh well, who knows what surprises the next book will bring I NEED IT NOW PS Lucy REALLY needs to get over the Holly hate It s gotten really old. This book is awesome It has all of the great components one looks for in a young adult book quick action, loveable characters, a great plot, and it manages to both put a smile on my face as well as scare me to the point where I have to sleep with the lights on.Unlike the other Lockwood and Co books so far, this one focuseson action and plot, and less so on the individual haunts and the team bonding aspect And, while refreshing, it does have its downsides though not many.For starters, Lucy was a little bit annoying in the first half of this book Not to the point where I disliked her, but to the point where I questioned where the awesome heroine from the other three novels went and why she was replaced with an irritating at times and overly jealous for no reason girl I understand completely why she acts like this, and to this I can simply say Lucy, denial is not only a river in Egypt It s obvious you like Lockwood, so why not ACT on it But that s the only downside Otherwise, this book was FANTASTIC There s action, there s laughter, there are loveable characters and notable moments I absolutely loved the scenes between Lucy and Lockwood there s an especially adorable one near the end of the book , and the normal Lucy is back in the second half of this book, which was great.Of course, I highly recommend But then I realize I have to wait another entire year for the finale.Also, I needSkull backstory NOW PLEASE I have this huge crush with Lockwood and every time his name pops up, I drool.This is the 4th book of the series and if you haven t read the other 3 yet, close this tab right now and wash your eyes The story started six months after Lucy left Lockwood s agencywailsThere s still some major exorcism in this book but what differs The Creeping Shadow from the 3 books is that, this book reveals some major creepy conspiracy that is happening all over London.I won t tell you any spoiler because I m that nice but here are my reasons why this book deserves my four star.1 Lucy and Lockwood moments Like for real I know that there s no romance in this series but holy snickle snitty snattery shit, I love those short but this is warming my dead heart moments between Lucy and Lockwood 2 The skull.That trash talking, super creepy and devilish skull in the jar provides the best jokes He was awesome since book 2 and if you re a fan of this little fella, read this book.3 SECRETS REVEALED.Color me shocked when someone informs someone about some serious mojojojo that affects the whole story If you ve read the book and know what I m talking about, call me We ll fangirl and do discuss about it.Btw, I need to ask When will the next book be released The wait for this is going to kill me Reading this is going to kill me Everything about this book will kill me EDIT There s a blurb and Lucy just left I can t even process this I m so excited Personally, I m hoping for lots of Lucewood.6 8 16 THERE S A COVER AND I COULDN T LOVE IT MORE 3 11 17 Wow Read this book
